Mighty Box Games, a European development shop, has decided to stomp out the dying embers of unmitigated emotion by creating a videogame "loosely based" on the Joy Division song "Love Will Tear Us Apart."
Consequence of Sound says the game is sure to make you want to "cancel your Xbox Live membership":
In keeping with the wrist-slitting vibe, the game encourages players to “reflect on the darker side of love: miscommunication, emotional impasse and the sadness of separation. Solace may be found in the brief moment of lightness that comes over us when we come to terms with the reality of an irreconcilable relationship.” So, thinkHalo, except replace The Flood with your girlfriend and energy swords with feelings and conversation.
Do you ever feel like Millenials are just waiting around to cannibalize your rotting (but still living) corpse?
